DIY Compost Bin


A few different types of hardware mesh build this bin – Awesome!


  • Approximately 12 feet of wire fence hardware cloth (also known as ‘welded wire utility fence‘) forms the circular container.
  • Electrician’s plastic wire ties (zip ties or cable ties) for connectors, hinges and to capture the redwood handle.
  • The lid and top of the bin is made from a finer mesh hardware cloth.
  • All edges on the top were bent to form a hem and make the hinged lid a bit stiffer

Teaching Your Dog Not to Jump Up


drmark says: The most important thing to remember, no matter how you choose to train your dog, is to be consistent. If you let her jump up on you Saturday morning when you are wearing your old jeans, she will think that it is okay to jump up on you Monday morning when you are dressed for that important meeting. Your dog does not own an iPhone with a calendar, she cannot tell the difference between the weekend and a work day. Don’t let her jump up only when you are in the mood.

Crashed Witch Prop


PaintItBlack says,”Got the Union Products cauldren at a rummage sale for 50 cents, dollar store knee socks $1 and spanish moss $1, yard sale shoes .50, broom $1.50. Used an old pool noodle for legs and some scrap foam inside the cauldren. Also used some dollar store bamboo sticks $1 to stick inside the pool noodles and into the foam in the cauldren. Threw some rocks into the bottom of the cauldren before the foam, to stabilize the whole thing. Total cost was a whopping $5.50, and I am pleased with the result. I will probably display this on the front porch this season.”
